Product Rave: ELLIS FAAS

As much as I love the idea of a blog it has been a bit of an undertaking. As I'm sure you've already noticed, I'm not a natural born writer. I'm a natural born talker. But it's times like this where I'm so glad  that I decided to bite off more than I can chew. I wanted to serve these products justice because I think they deserve it! There was certainly more that could have been said and shown but of course I'm a slave to the boundaries set forth by YT. What I wanted to add in regards to this wonderful line was that the products layer beautifully. It's the perfect product to use when going from day to night. If you happen to use the milky eyes in the day you could go over it with the creamy eyes and it would be flawless. You wouldn't get any patchiness or look as though your makeup has been on all day. The eyeshadows are enriched with flower and coffee extracts. The blushes are made with Vitamin C and E and the lip products are paraben free and also enriched with vitamin E. I also wanted to add that although I think it is a bit pricey,  I mean that in terms of ordering from Canada, what with the exchange rate of Canadian dollars to Euro and of course the added tax and shipping. If one was to live In Europe I think it's actually very reasonable for what it is your getting. Ahh yet another excuse to add to an already long list of reasons to cross the pond.

                                          C'est tres belle ..non?

As you can see from the swatches the creamy eyes (top two) are very pigmented and the milky eyes (bottom) are sheerer but they can be built up to be as dark as the creamy colors. From top to bottom E104, E105, E205

 Oh so many colors!...hmmm which ones to choose! Hopefully all of them!

The blush ( on top) is S302 and it gives a beautiful natural flush. It's amazing how well it blends into the skin. The bottom is milky lips L208 and it's a wonderful peachy nude. I topped it with Mac's Ember glow in the video.

As I stated in the video, since I've started using these products I haven't grabbed for anything else. They are so quick and easy to use, yet gives a totally flawless finish. I'm sure if you tried just one of her eyeshadows you'd be hooked!


  1. Très joli, oui! Very interesting products - this is the second brand I hear for the first time from you, girl - Hourglass being the first! Thanks! :)

  2. I'm so glad I can offer something new Poli. Hourglass and Ellis Faas are both really high quality brands...but also pricier....sigh....;-D
